Friends Leila Boujnane and Paul Bloore have just put a public face on the project their company, Idée Inc., has been working on for some time now. TinEye revolutionizes image search across the Internet by returning images that look like an image that you supply to the search engine.

It's a remarkable technology, and a fabulous application. Here's Amber Mac explaining TinEye:
Congratulations, Leila and Paul!
